See antique vehicles including a civil war ambulance, walk through an old cemetery, climb an observation tower, and stand in a jail cell! A great outing for only $4. A wonderful value!

The lay out is a bit strange, upper loop and lower loop, definitely not good for people needing to use the bath house. IT is close to a civil war iron side boat, a great restoration, and the travel along the Mississippi is very interesting.
